The 24th of April 2011. Cirkeline became the mother of nine beautiful puppies. They arrived 4 days before expected, they are all fully developed with a strong will to live. Cirkeline gave birth to the first puppy a t 14:50, a brown male weighing 258 g and already at 15:08 she was breast feeding him without any problems. Puppy # 2 was born at 15:22 a brown female weighing 280 g. Puppy # 3 came at 16:40 a brown female with a very small white chest weighing 318 g. Puppy # 4 came at 16:52 a brown female weighing 304 g. All four puppies was breastfeeding really well. P uppy # 5 came at 18:10 a little black male with a white front weighing 250 g, he was very weak at birth but Cirkeline looked after him well and he recovered soon and began to breastfeed. Puppy # 6 came at 18:48 as a seat birth, a little black female weighing 230 g, she was even more weak than her black brother, but she also came under the good care of Cirkeline and recovered nicely. Puppy # 7 came at 19:00 and was a little black boy weighing 242 g, he also were slightly weak at birth, Cirkeline was in good control of the situation, and he was soon gaining his power. Cirkeline did now relax and everything was quiet, the 6 siblings nursed fine, but it was like puppy # 7 could not really grab and make vacuum on the breast. Puppy # 8 came at 21:05 a brown female weighing 310 g, she was fine and lively right from the start, just as she had not been slow in coming (=
At 21:45 we felt allmost sure that no more puppies would arrive, therefore we called the vet to get Cirkeline and the puppies checked. Puppy # 7 was still not able to breastfeed properly, we suspected that he perhaps suffered cleft palate. At 22:00 just when the vet arrived puppy # 9 came, a little brown female weighing 295 grams and really strong and fine. The vet checked # 7, and fortunately nothing was wrong with him. We gave him a little bottle of milk substitute and we also gave him some puppyboost to strengthen him. The vet checked Cirkeline and found no more puppies, he also gave her a uterine contraction injection.
Puppy # 7 still had a hard time breastfeeding at Cirkeline, and from 23 to 05 we were up every 20 minutes to assist him breastfeeding, hard work especially when you the last 48 hours only slept three hours. At 5:00 April the 25th he succeeded himself to find the nipple and make a good vacuum . Now they are hopefully all well on their track (= it looks as they are (= See more pictures in: Puppies 2011 D litter - Week 0

The 23rd of April 2011. We went to an exhibition in Næstved. We participated with "Nelle" Unistars Chanel No 5, she made a fantastic effort and was second best bitch in breed. We had a lovely afternoon, and sister "Caya" with family from Gilleleje did visit us at the exhibition.

The 20th of April 2011. Mac was home to have a haircut. Wonderful to see our boy again. He is such a lovely dog. What a coup to get him (= He was given a retriever clip, what he himself thought was super nice (=

The 19th of April 2011. A family from Brønshøj did visit us, and they might want to give a home to one of the puppies from Cirkeline (= We surely do hope so (= Thank you for visiting.

The 17th of April 2011. We can now feel the puppies being alive in the stomach of Cirkeline. It is an amazing feeling. Cirkeline has as recommended been given a deworming prior to the birth. Cirkeline is currently busy building "a nest" at various locations, particularly the doghouse outside is a popular place for her to hang around. However I am sure that she will not meet much understanding from her family, if she have plans to give birth to her puppies there (=
We will be at the dogshow in Næstved the 23rd of April 2011. If anyone would like to visit us at the dogshow, then we will be in the ring no. 6 and will be judged around 12-12:30.

The 13th of April 2011. Only 14 days to the puppies of Cirkeline will come, we are looking forward to meet these small life-affirming wonders.

The 12th of April 2011. Melua is unfortunately all too soon taken away from us. After ingestion of a large quantity of raw beef in September 2010 she has been lacking parts of her pancreas. She has been medically stabilized, but Monday she had a relapse and after a day with intravenous antibiotics and fluid therapy we had no choice, it went the wrong way. S he suffered, and Tuesday evening we had to take the difficult decision to say a final and very difficult goodbye. She has left a big emptyness in our hearts, and we miss her immeasurably.

The 11th of April 2011. We've got the genetic test results of Coco, she is IC: Normal and PRA: Normal. Not carrier of either eye disease nor coat faults (= Jubiii

The 11th of April 2011. The dog masseur Chris has been here - our dogs love to have massage (= Cirkeline should not be massaged because of her pregnancy but a big cuddle is ok (= and Coco is just always so happy when Chris is around, and thinks that they should spend more time kissing instead of all that stretching out, etc (= Chris is guessing that there will be 7 puppies, 2 males 5 females (= Personally I think there are 8 puppies, evenly divided by gender (=
One thing is for sure, it will not be long, before we can feel the puppies inside Cirkeline - she is doing great and just got her coat groomed, so she is ready to give birth to the puppies (=

The 7th of April 2011 Only 20 days back to the small wonders will see the light of day (=

3rd April 2011 We have been to the national DKK show in Tønder. We had good competition and company from Ilona (The Neitherlands) We competed with Coco and Nelle.
